Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson was born on December 10, 1830, in Amherst, Massachusetts. Emily also attended Mount Holyoke Female Seminary in South Hadley. She attended this school for only one year. Throughout Emily's life she rarely ever left her house and rarely came in contact with people. Most of Emilys poems were influenced by poems that she had read from seventeenth- century England. Some of the people that she had met had made an impact on her life which is where most of her poems had came from. when Emily passed her family found forty handbound volumes of nearly 1,800 poems.


Emily Dickinson's major accomplishment was writing over seventeen hundred poems in her lifetime mostly centred around two basic themes, death and immorality. Another accomplishment that Emily succeded with was that she didn't let her poetry be known until after her death on May 15, 1886.


Emily impacted America with her poetry just with how she used the concepts of life and death.

Poem summary:This poem to me is about two deceased people that lay in seperate coffins side by side. The poem says that the deceased people will lay there talking to each other until their names on their headstones are covered with moss and can no longer be read. I chose this poem because it was a mysterious type poem.
